String Art with Premier Yarns


Welcome, so glad you have stopped by today!

On this blog hop you are going to see so many different uses for Premier Yarns and you are going to LOVE them all! So many ideas from so many designers! 


**Disclosure:  This blog post includes products from Premier Yarns.  The yarn in this post was provided to me to create and share fun projects with my audience! This blog post is compensated.  All ideas and opinions are my own. 

I received this yarn called Spangle and the color is Emerald Crown from Premier Yarns, it is gorgeous! I did take a close up of the yarn so that you could see how beautiful this is. The Spangle is variegated and has a bit of a sparkle with a gold thread running through it. Since I don't crochet or knit, I needed another way to use this yarn. That is when string art came into play!

String Art is something I Did when I was younger.  My Dad owned a Hobby Shop and I was his go to gal to make the samples of the kits! So this is taking me back a few years. Wink, wink! I loved doing them and they have made such a comeback!

On this blog hop you are going to see so many different uses for yarn and I think you are going to LOVE them all! So many ideas from so many designers! 

Here is the close up Spangle - Emerald Crown, this still does not give it the justice it deserves. 


Okay, shall we get started?

What you will need:

Wood
Nails
Hammer
Computer Generated Words
Tape
Pencil
Ruler
Beacon 3-in-1 Adhesive

1. Gather all supplies.

 2. Tape paper onto wood.


3. Mark off where nail are to be pounded. This depends on the size of your design. I did approximately 1/4".



 4. Here comes the noise. (do not do while children are sleeping) Pound in all nails.


5. Make a slip knot and add to the first nail. I added glue to the knot for extra hold. (Just a dab) Do this at the end of each knot also.


6.  Start winding yarn around nails. I did a X like pattern. You can do any way you would like. Some   like to do a really tight weave and others a loose weave.


 7. On the smaller words, I just did an outline of the words. No pattern needed for those.


8. Wrap handle of the paddle with the Spangle yarn to give your piece extra color. 



I hope you enjoyed your time here. I have a surprise for you!!!
